that 'several Italians had gathered at
Carrayeta'a store in Morrissey Mines as
was the custom of theso people on Sundays , aud that a quarrel arose between
Cozza and auolher Italian by the -name
of Krank Amandin.    Tliecftiise of the
quanol 'does  not as yet seem to be
diiHiiiuly settled biit tho parties went
outside of thu store where Amandia,
after, .Bcuilling with Coz*/*a drew a gun
and fired three shots ut him as he was
running away, following after him he
overtook him whero' ho had fallen to
the ground, and grappling with hiin he
fired. two moie' shots, the last of which
entered the back of the head and ranged
upward toward' the front of,, the head,
causing instant deatlu      7 'v..\„   ..

The Roscian 0pera Company's presentation of Sousii's-El Capitan last
Thursday night-'wuf, so far as the
company waa.concerned, a very pleasant musical entertainment.'' ■ .   „
Sousa|s comic opera scores will not
stand loo' close" comparison- with
those ofGilbeft and SulHvin, but
nevertheless, they are very-catchy and
sparkling,'while the dialogue and the
old Spanish colonial setting of the piece
makes ot El Capitan * a very popular
production. - -   ^ ' y ■
The choruses, and,marches were extremely well rendered-showing careful
training by Mr. Hosmer.,the able   musical director of-the- company    This
gentleman bus directed operas in  that
famous musical center,   Zurich,   and
was also director for Madame Scliuman
Hcinke, when she) toured continental
Europe in Grand Opera.   To" a close
observer' Mr. Hosmer's complete con-
^trol oMiis company ..was very   evident.
Lucia Nola, in th* leading roll of Isabel!'
proved,herself a singer of high' rank.
She is tbe possessor of a very clear,"
sweet voice, which won fcr lier a well
deserved encore for her very'touching
rendition of the solo, in the Boon. song.
Miss Eflie George,has* a surprisingly
mellow voice .when- confined to a low
register, but shows signs of- wavering
when she attempts -high Writes. '.Miss
Hazel Davenport,-jtsEstrelda, supplied
the bubbling vivacity necessary to balance the drolleries of Claud  Amsden,
and kept the audience in as good humor with her as sbe'evidently was with
herself." Every,act.A-very note, in  her
part was rendered .will) ra spirit  that
was infectious.  . Mr. Amsden, as-Don
Errico and El Capitan,'-displayed wonderful ability as a-comedian.    He, has
a firm full voice, though  it was not at
all times exactly true. > Perhaps'U. was
because he tried le keep -in lune^with
the piano, used on the occasion. 7
' All together the company .was so well
balanced.and sp,\yell conducted -,that.it
is safe to say they gave, us the-best-, en-
tertiiinnient^in.the \vay, of light" opera
